Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
I have some issue with an electric part. Time by time the sign ''battery discharge'' comes on and then dissapiered. It may happend at any time with no apparent reason and it may long from a blink and up to minutes. No matter if I stay or drive, it may happend..once it happend at night, and I saw that beam light get dimed, then it came back to normal and sign disappeared. Rats! I just can't rely on this car!
I changed a battery, an alternator (actually changed 2 of them), I had dealer guys checking it - they sad everything is ok. But obviously its not ok, the problem is still there..
Does anybody has any idea what should I do whith this?
Is there any methodic to recognize the fail point in the system?
I would appreciate any help
The normal rule is when something "strange" is happening it is a ground issue.
Remove and clean your battery cables, not only at the battery but follow the cables and clean them at the block, starter etc...
When replacing the connection use a dielectric grease or chasis lube to coat the terminal.
Hope that helps.
